They went back to the castle at about 9p.m. They’d talked about everything, and Kadiaka taught him how to recognize healing leaves. They had been riding around the forest for so long. She’d told him of how she loves children and how she would have many children for the man she would love.
His heart and thoughts changed towards some certain things when he’d talked with her that day. He spent just a few hours with her, and she’d changed some certain ideologies about things he’d thought were just cool.
He loved Kadiaka, he wished she was all his, but he wasn’t going to break Sana’s heart.
When he opened his bedroom door and saw Sana covered with the quilt, he knew something was wrong.
She never covered her body, except she was sick.
“Are you okay?” he asked.
“I am fine. Just a fever,” she said softly.
“I should call the family doctor to check on you,” he said.
“No,” she said. “I am just coming from the hospital, I’ll be fine.”
“Where have you been?” she asked.
“I went swimming, then horse riding.”
“Alone?” she asked.
“No, not alone.” He paused and looked at her face, “With Kadiaka,” he said.
Without a word, she picked up the quilt, and covered her body up to her neck.
“You like her?” she asked.
“I love her,” he replied softly.
She smiled, “I saw it in your eyes on the night of your birthday, I saw the way you looked at her.”
He glanced up at her with a sardonic twist to his lips. “You’ll be fine,” he said, and kissed her on the forehead. “You can have a baby if you want,” he added.
Sana sat up and slapped his face rudely. He held his cheeks. He watched her, and didn’t know what to do to her. If he slapped her back, she might not wake up to see a new dawn. He thought.
He stood up quietly and slammed the door.
This was one of the bleakest days of Sana’s life. Her knees suddenly went weak and she slumped to the ground and sobbed. She strode around the castle and dug her fingernails into the bark of the tree while her whole world tilted and blackness crushed her.
She fought against a fear that was so dark it felt as if it was smothering her. She wiped her tears, angry because it was too late for Andy to tell her they can start having babies.
Besides herself, there was only one person who knew that she wasn’t going to have babies anymore, and that person was Doctor Winifred.
But she would try her best to keep her marriage safe.
Andy had taken Siana the horse away. He rode gently on her to his mansion and when he got there, he opened one of his expensive whiskeys and sipped it gently.
He called one of his guards, “Bring me Kadiaka,” he said.
Not long, he could hear their footsteps approaching the door. He opened the door and when he saw Kadiaka, he kissed her before the guard.
“Come, I want to talk to you,” he said, holding her hands and leading her to his couch.
“My favorite whiskey,” he said as he handed it to her. She collected it silently, and gulped it down.
“Sana and I are having issues,” he said and took the bottle of whiskey from her. He poured some for himself, and gave it back to her.
“Is she angry that I was here with you?” she asked.
“No, Sana isn’t like that. She is not bothered about the women around me.”
“Then what is making you two have issues?”
“Don’t worry about that. Come,” he held her hands, “Let’s have a shower and go swimming,” he said.
He held her hands and led her to his bathroom and took off his clothes. She watched him, “I’m honored to behold your naked body,” she said.
He got into the Jacuzzi bathtub and sank into the water. She pulled off her dress and joined him. He couldn’t take his eyes off her. Her whole body invited him to touch it.
Soapy foam flowed through her fingers as she lathered her hair. It felt glorious to be in there. Soap was stinging her eyes, he helped her wiped it off. He couldn’t touch her, he only admired her with his eyes.
After they had their bath, they walked together to the pool and dived in, naked.
He held her and began to kiss her, he licked her whole body and fell back into the water.
“I love you,” he said.
“Will Madam Sana be happy to hear that?” she asked.
He looked her straight in the eyes and said, “Love matters more than whatever she thinks.”
